Perfect band for our mountain wedding!!!

Blue River Grass was absolutely wonderful for our small wedding at Three Peaks Ranch in Westcliffe, CO. They were professional, attentive, and so helpful throughout the wedding planning process. Their bluegrass vibe was unique and the two songs they learned for us were delivered beautifully with their own BRG flair. Benjie, Maureen & Brett were personable and made connections with many of our guests. We could not recommend BRG enough!!! ♥️

Best wedding band in co

I'm not exactly sure how to fully express just how much we LOVED BLUE RIVER GRASS at our wedding, so I'll start by saying this: having Blue River Grass as our band MADE OUR WEDDING. I absolutely cannot overstate the amazing live-music experience they provided for us and our guests and if you are looking for a live band, particularly with a rocky-blue-grass feels, save yourself time and energy and just HIRE THEM. If you need more details than that to make your choice please continue to read my novel about how amazing they are:

My husband and I knew we wanted a live band over a DJ, and we were most excited about hiring a blue grass band. After an extensive search through every wedding band imaginable in Colorado (and surrounding states) I finally found BRG. Benji was super responsive and we quickly got on a call together where he patiently answered all my questions like the true professional that he is. We hired them almost immediately.

Between finalizing our booking and the big day we had communication back and forth about songs they could learn or already knew for first dances, sound system setups, etc. All of it felt incredibly smooth and despite all the other stressors that can and did come with plannign our wedding, I always felt so confident that Benji and BRG were completely on top of it.

Cut to the day of our wedding. I walked down the aisle to my cousin playing guitar on BRG's speaker, enjoyed a playlist they made for our cocktail hour, and we both had so much fun clumsily stomping around the dance floor to our first dance song that BRG played live (thanks for braving a Valerie June cover for us!).

Benji's voice is raspy gold and his rock star energy is undeniable, Maureen absolutely rips on the violin and knows how to work a crowd, and Brett not only serenaded us with those sweet sweet low bass vibrations but served as an excellent emcee for the various events on the dance floor.

We told BRG to play a mix of covers people would recognize (based on some of our general music taste) and some of their own stuff and for us this blend was PERFECT. This resulted in covers of The Talking Heads, The Cure, The Head and the Heart, Trampled by Turtles, Lorde, and so many others I just can't remember them all now.

My side of the family loves to dance (we don't dance well, but what we lack in skill we make up for with enthusiasm), but my husband's not-so-much; but we were shocked when we noticed both sides of his family couldnt' help but move their bodies to BRG's playing! One of his cousins coined the term "board breaker" because we were all out there stomping our feet so hard to the bluegrass that the whole deck we were on was shaking (note to ensure structural integrity of wedding dance venue - ours held up). If you have nosey family members asking "how do you dance to bluegrass" the answer is "stomp your feet," the rest will come naturally.

If you made it this far into this review, I think you know what you need to do, hire them, hire them, hire them!! Cross entertainment off of your mile-long wedding to-do list and let these absolute musical angels take care of your special day for you in whatever way you're looking for live music to be integrated into it.
